375w ago - How do you feel about the PlayStation 3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV not receiving the downloadable content that the Xbox 360 will be receiving?

Microsoft previously mentioned the two downloadable episodic content they payed Rockstar $50 million to receive will equal the size of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and San Andreas.

A recent preview in the latest issue (April 2008) of PlayStation:

The Official Magazine stated that Rockstar's Jeronimo Barrera said the PlayStation 3 will most likely receive it's own form of downloadable content as well. However, a new Take-Two release states that the Xbox 360 will be receiving it's downloadable content in 2008, and they plan on issuing more content for (most likely) both consoles in 2009. That means the PlayStation 3 will never see those San Andreas and Vice City sized pieces of episodic content.

If you would like to know how I feel, I'll tell you. I'm not just a blogger, I'm a proud PlayStation 3 owner as well, and will be picking up Grand Theft Auto IV for PlayStation 3 no matter what. Seeing as how San Andreas and Vice City went to Xbox, I see that it's only right Rockstar does the same with these two new pieces of episodic content (possibly Bully as well). So I guess as we near the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, you can take it that I'm pretty upset.

Too bad this isn't Russia back in World War I, where we can just threaten to revolt if the government (meaning Rockstar) doesn't listen to the people (meaning PlayStation 3 owners). How do you feel about this? Go ahead, tell it all.

Personally I think the PC version will always be the best of any GTA Series Game.

The game is not as big as its predecessor San Andreas, Rockstar have said they want to make it physically smaller but more detailed, their really trying to make the city feel alive. In the terms of extra content, i think we will see stuff on the PS Store that you won't be able to get on the 360, and there will be some content that will be aviable on multiplatform, i think sometimes thats just the way it goes. I doubt Rockstar will cut SONY short because they have always been loyal to them, all the previous GTA games were first launced on the SONY consoles and they cant afford to jeapordise that relationship.

Why should we care?

GTA IV will be huge like 3, VC & SA. Those extra are something that Microsoft wanted, not Rockstar.

Not to bad, cus i am sure the ps3 version will probably be better, and ps3 gets extra contents, no episodes, but who cares about a few more missions ? (except for the xbox nubz) i rather like more cars and weapons like we will ghet in time.

TBH I'm not bothered. The game is probably gonna be so lengthy that even if i did get it on ps3, i would never get around to playing right through it. like san andreas, i'll get to about 60% completion and start playing something else.

If you ask me microsoft is not taking full advantage of the situation, 'Exclusive episodid content' they keep on talking about doesnt mean anything to the average consumer they need to actualy show somthing. Most people wouldnt even know about the $50mil MS loaned to rockstar so to them it might mean just some extra clothes for your character or something.

if its the size of vice city and san andreas, it has to be huge.. sad news for all ps3 owners. why wuld rockstar do that? they have their solid sony-fanbase, why spoil them?

any news about a computer version by the way?
